J.Lo: The Writing's on the Wall
'American Idol' judge drops clearest hint yet to 'Today'
Jennifer Lopez is practically coming out and saying it now: Next season, "American Idol" will have a J.Lo-size hole to fill.
Here's what she told "The Today Show's" Natalie Morales Thursday: "I love everybody. I love all the guys on the show. I love the family that’s there. Like I said, I’ve just enjoyed it so much. But I am thinking that maybe it’s time for me to go and do other things that I really love to do.”
However, she did add: "But then again, I really love the show, so…"
The "Idol" judge was promoting her new film "Ice Age: Continental Dirt" during a satellite interview.
In May, Lopez also told former "Idol" judge Ellen DeGeneres: "I don't know if I can go for a third year. I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year."
"American Idol" returns next winter on FOX.
The whole crew just about "wrecked" Idol last year. They "picked" on the poor girl from McKinney, Tx and she had a good voice. It would be refreshing to have Adam Lambert, Katy Perry (star factor) and someone else from the record industry. But Randy Jackson just got "old and tired". JoLo brought her career around because of Idol. Now she dresses like she's 21 and dating 21 year olds and acting foolish! Steven Tyler started out great but was worn out by the end of the season.
If they don't make a "wholesale" change, I will not watch Idol again. I even quit watching when they votedoff the blond girl from McKinney, Tx. It was very obvious that all of the judges were against her. She was very "professional" for taking their criticism every week knowing they were against her.
Change is good. Let's see if Idol can come back to life amidst all of the new "singing" shows.
What AI needs is a real showman with a great voice and 35 years in the buisness.The one and only ALICE COOPER!
Perfect Panel of new judges.
Harry Connick JR (when he mentored a few seasons back, he was terrific)
Kelly Clarkson (the Duets show didn't do much for her)
Harry Connick Jr
Mary J. Blige
Never could think she was a good or great judge! She appeared to be lucky to have the job, if Salena did not get shot would we even know who she is?
